Tough, on the cheap – Winnipeg Free Press

Tough, on the cheap

Updated: July 28

The Manitoba government has been front and centre in the war against youth violence, demanding new federal laws and harsher penalties while ramping up civil remedies by which it can, itself, crack down on miscreant young people. It has done little, however, to find places to hold them, squeezing them in, frequently with adults also before the courts.

When will there be real justice for First Nations people? – Globe and Mail

Web-exclusive comment
When will there be real justice for First Nations people?

HAYDEN KING
Special to Globe and Mail Update
July 27, 2008 at 6:10 PM EDT

When speaking on the phone with friends who live on-reserve, it’s often amusing to begin the conversation with the customary caution that the line is tapped. In recent days though – having learned that Mohawk activist Shawn Brant, along with his friends and family members, had had their conversations recorded by the OPP without a court order – this amusement has turned to dread. And the dismal reality that is the relationship between First Nations people and the justice system has been illuminated as well.

Road to full citizenship leads back to Kelowna – Toronto Star

Road to full citizenship leads back to Kelowna

Apology was historic but native peoples still are denied full equality as Canadian citizens

Jul 28, 2008 04:30 AM
Kathleen Mahoney

June 11, 2008, was an iconic day for Canadian citizenship. The apology offered by the Government of Canada to aboriginal peoples for the 150-year residential schools experiment in assimilation was a clear and unequivocal affirmation of their entitlement to the full civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights denied them for so long.

First Nations Finally Receive Equal Rights . . . Well, Sort Of

2008-07-28 (AV046)

While legislation granting human rights protection for First Nation is a positive step, it still includes troubling provisos that favour First Nation governments.

In Brief:

– When the Canadian Human Rights Act was introduced in the 1970s, it exempted First Nations living on-reserve from its provisions. This was seen as a temporary move back then.

– While Canadians should applaud the recent repeal of this exemption, the legislation contains troubling amendments that “water down” individual rights and favour government.
